Egypt`s ousted president Morsi in prison hospital
Cairo: Security officials say Egypt`s ousted President Mohammed Morsi spent his first night in a civilian penitentiary in a hospital room after he complained he wasn`t feeling well.
Morsi was transferred to a maximum security prison in a remote desert area near Alexandria, Egypt`s second city, after his first trial session was adjourned to January 8.
It was his first appearance following his July ouster. Since then, he has been held in a secret military facility.
Upon arrival to the prison, the 62-year-old Morsi complained of high blood pressure and high blood sugar, officials said today, speaking anonymously because they were not authorised to brief reporters.
They said he was taken to a prison hospital room with a separate bathroom and a TV. The Interior Ministry said he was receiving regular check-ups.
